Mather Gorge

Mather Gorge, which is located inside the Great Falls Park, is the narrowest section of the lower stretch of the Potomac River. The gorge, which is just down river from the Great Falls, takes its name from Stephen Mather, the first director of the National Parks Service. Visitors to the park can hike along the steep cliffs of the gorge, or scale the cliffs themselves while rock climbing. The gorge can also be explored by kayak and canoe, though water goers should be aware that the gorge contains Class I to Class IV whitewater rapids.

Sandy Spring Adventure Park

Sandy Spring Adventure Park is one of the largest outdoor climbing adventure parks in the United States. The park, which is made up of a series of courses winding through the trees high off the ground, boasts a whopping 29 zip lines, 200 challenge bridges, and 13 trails. Adventurers five years and up can choose easy, medium, and challenging paths through the trees. All of the trails originate from the main platform in the center of the park, and each is color-coded to show its difficulty level. Climbers can generally complete two to four trails within the three-hour climbing period.
